Following an acclaimed, sold-out, and extended Off-Broadway run earlier this summer, comedian Mike Birbiglia’s newest show, The New One, officially opens November 11 at the Cort Theatre. The show is playing a limited engagement at the Cort Theatre through January 20, 2019.
Mike Birbiglia: The New One features additional writing by Jennifer Hope Stein and is directed by Seth Barrish. Birbiglia, who is also an author and filmmaker, has remained deliberately secretive about the details of the show, explaining that The New One should be discovered in the theatre.
The New One debuted at the Cherry Lane Theatre in July and, after quickly selling out its initial run, extended by popular demand.
The Broadway production features set design by Beowulf Boritt, lighting design by Aaron Copp, and sound design by Leon Rothenberg.
Birbiglia's recent shows include My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend and Thank God for Jokes, which were both filmed for Netflix. In addition to performing live, Birbiglia wrote, directed, and starred in the films Sleepwalk with Me and Don’t Think Twice.
